Pads Logic 9.5 bug- Reloading a part from library reloads all same-type parts on schematic

Hello- Has anyone else found a workaround for this major bug in Pads Logic 9.5?

 

Bug: In a schematic with multiple instances of the same part, if you reload a part with the same part from the library, (Properties/Change Type) then it will reload EVERY part in the schematic of the same type, even though the checkbox "Apply update to" "[ ] This Part" is checked, and the "[ ] All Parts this type" checkbox is NOT checked.

 

Therefore, you will LOSE any changes you have made to other parts of the same part on the schematic, for example, if you have changed a a displayed attribute to show "DoNotPopulate" then that info is lost from the schematic.

 

The only workaround I have found is to change the part type to a different part type, and then change it again to the same part type. Then the other parts of the same original type are not affected.

 

Thanks
